  1. Link texts are not showing up in Software Center.

    I read somewhere else that that feature is no longer functional due because Application Catalog was retired. Please update the documentation if this is true.

  2. Software center says "downloading" for clients on subnets not defined in boundaries

    Just like the title says. When clients reside on a subnet not defined in boundaries, the deploy stays in a "downloading" state forever. This is not accurate. The deploy is not downloading. Please raise a meaningful error message that indicates the deploy has failed and to contact your administrator to add a new boundary.

  3. Windows Update Status

    Hi,

    it would be helpful, if there were more infos in the softwarecenter about the current window update status of the device. At the moment it is not visible for the user, if the device is up to date, are there updates missing or when were the last update installation.
    also nice would be a hint if there is a pending reboot to finalize an update isntallation.

  4. Allow users to clear "new software is available" toast message

    The "new software is available" toast message is annoying to users who have already checked Software Center and seen that there are no new applications, or that the new applications are ones they don't need or want to install.


    1. The toast message should align with the state displayed in the Software Center. From the SCNotify logs I can see SCCM thinks there is now software available, but the same packages are not marked as new in Software Center.

    2. Users should be able to clear the notifications and not see them again until or unless new software is actually available. Thisā€¦

  5. Add option to only show software in Software Centre that is on the local DP

    Currently if a client is in a boundary where the local DP does not have the source files the application is still listed as available however it fails to install, it would be great to have a setting for Administrators to be able to limit the Software Centre to only show applications that are available within that boundary.

  6. Labeling Software Center Buttons and Fields for Accessibility

    Currently, when using a screen reader (like JAWS or NVDA), Software Center is very difficult to use because the fields and controls lack labels. For example, searching for a title in the library, there are two radio buttons for changing views between a list and a grid, but the rest lack indication of their purpose. Example (Using NVDA)

    All radio button not checked L - Required radio button checked R -- (Fields should have clear labels or "All" and "required" but currently have underscores in each word. Also, should be contained in a fieldset with a legend of "Type"ā€¦

  7. allow custom tabs ms-windows-store://pdp additionally to http://

    can you please allow ms-windows-store://pdp as a link in the custom tabs? now it is only allowed to have http:// and https:// links as a custom tab.
    If you allow this, we can open the Store App in the Software Center, as a single point of app/application selection/install for the Endusers.

  8. Allow end users to run "reuseable" scripts via software center

    Extend script functionality to allow an end user to run a script on-demand via the software center. This allows for admins to publish user driven maintenance tasks that can be used over and over. This functionality is available in other configuration management software such as JAMF for Mac management.

    Admin would deploy a script, script shows up in software center. User can run the script as many times as they need, any time. Restrictions could be configurable so admins can specify how often they can run the script. Once the script is ran, it remains available forever or until restrictedā€¦

  10. Software Center Not Showing Available User Deployed Applications on Internet due to MFA

    We recently implemented the CMG and observed the issue with Computers on the Internet. When some users opened the Software center applications tab they did not see any user deployed software.

    The issue is in log C:\Windows\CCM\Logs\ADALOperationProvider.log It reports MFA issue:
    WAM token request failed. Status 3, Details 'AADSTS50076: Due to a configuration change made by your administrator, or because you moved to a new location, you must use multi-factor authentication to access.

  11. Make phased deployment feature "Gradually make the software available over the period of time" available to any deployment.

    Make the phased deployment only feature >>
    "Gradually make the software available over the period of time"
    ....a generic sccm feature available to ANY sccm deployment config, as it would be very useful in many rollout situations.
    Thanks

  13. Allow changing Boolean logic on search Criteria in SCCM

    Allow selection of Boolean logic in search criteria. Currently it automatically uses OR for second items when I require AND. Alternately, let us add multiple items in a criteria eg. Title 'Does not contain': Server 8.1 SQL would exclude any item that had ANY of those words in it.

  14. Software Center Command Line Switch Addition for Package Support

    Software Center Command Line Switch Addition

    It is not currently possible to display a specific package in the same way we can display a specific application in Software Center via command line or URL command with softwarecenter:SoftwareID=

    Also an option to specify a search term would be a fantastic additional feature. E.G. Launch Software Center and automatically search for all Adobe products.

    This addition would make launching Software Center with a specific application, package or search term seamless if clicking a link in an email, an intranet page or customised shortcuts.

    This is what a package command line might lookā€¦

  15. Per deployment customization control of 'Required software changes...' dialog

    Enable per deployment administrator control of the 'Required software changes...' notification dialog to accommodate the following user experience enhancements to more intuitively inform them about the level of importance (i.e. urgency, severity, etc.), time remaining to deadline, and whether a restart is expected:
    1. Icon indicating importance (e.g. informational, warning, critical, etc.)
    2. Dynamic change (with configurable threshold) of predominate colorization based on time remaining to deadline (e.g. green if deadline > 1 day, red < 1 hour, etc.)
    3. Indication for expectation/probability of restart
    4. Deployment templates for re-using combinations of above options (1-3).

  16. Software Center 'Uninstall' option not always available

    This issues shows for me from time to time but it seems to show mostly with available deployments and on the old Software Center. If there is only one title in the 'Installed Software' tab you generally can't select the uninstall option as it is grayed out. This seems to commonly happen when i switch to that tab but if there is multiple applications I am able to click on a different one and return to the newly installed one and 'uninstall' becomes available and when there is only one on that tab you can't 'refresh' the code to validateā€¦

  17. Import and Export within Exclusion Settings for Antimalware Policies

    Import and Export within Exclusion Settings for Antimalware Policies for people moving over from other vendors would be so helpful. The option to sort alphabetically also would be a good option. Cut and paste option is poor currently due to size limitations.

  18. Optional buttons in Softwarecenter

    Create optional buttons at Application and Update section in Softwarecenter to run deployed applications or update task in softwarecenter.
    Would be much easier to tell people update the deployed apps or windows updates

  20. Reduce the size of the icons in Software Center

    Everything in Software Center is too large and the navigation menus take up too much space making it worse. On a 1080p display it's very difficult to see more then a couple rows making it difficult to search through the apps.
